NEWARK, N.J. – February 7, 2008 – After the widely-anticipated and much-celebrated opening of the Prudential Center in New Jersey's largest city, Pollstar recently listed Bon Jovi's 10 show stand at the arena as the #1 Grossing Concert in North America for 2007. Pollstar is the concert industry's leading trade publication and maintains the world's largest database of concert tour information.
Welcoming over 150,000 fans from October 25 through November 10, 2007, Prudential Center hosted Bon Jovi with supporting acts My Chemical Romance, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, All-American Rejects and Daughtry as they sold out 10 performances to open the first new arena built in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area in over 25 years.
“What a fantastic opening for a very special venue,” said Dale Adams, General Manager of Prudential Center. “It was an honor to have Bon Jovi and the state of New Jersey embrace this building with such enthusiasm. Thank you to everyone involved with event and a very special thank you to the fans who sold out 10 shows.”
